Homework Help & Tutoring

Homework Help

Homework Help is a quiet relaxed place for Grades 1st-12 students to receive help with daily homework assignments and weekly packets. We encourage good study habits and teach students how to be more independent. Students may join the program anytime during the school year. Students may come every day Monday-Thursday 2:30 to 4:30 or just the days they need it due to busy schedules. Byron-Bergen students can be bused right from school to the center.
Homework Help is great for students:

+  Who need extra support with homework
+  Families that have “homework fights”
+  Busy families with evening commitments

Need childcare after Homework Help? Special pricing package available!! Kid Zone* after Homework Help for an additional $5 each day. $8/hour session or prepay 10 Sessions for $60.

*Paperwork must be completed 24hr in advance.

Tutoring Services

Tutoring is available all school year by appointment. Our tutors will help your students understand class material, prepare for regents, or keep up with
academic goals.

We provide tutoring services for students from kindergarten through 12th grade in any of the core subject areas of english, reading, writing, science, math and social studies.

Our tutors are certified NYS teachers, retired teachers, college students and math and science professionals. All tutors are screened and interviewed. They are required to participate in tutor training. Tutors only work in their area of expertise.

We believe the goals of tutoring are:

  • to promote independence in learning
  • to personalize instruction
  • to facilitate the student’s insights into learning and the learning process
  • to promote school success
  • to improve study skills
  • to increase student’s self-confidence

How to Start
If you feel your child needs tutoring, contact the Learning Center Coordinator at 585-494-1621. Then you will meet with the coordinator and tutor. Your child will be assessed. The tutor, student, and parent will set some goals together using the school’s curriculum, NYS standards, and assessment results to plan sessions. Then tutoring begins!

When to End Tutoring
Tutoring concludes when the goals set at the consultation meeting have been reached. There is not a minimum or maximum amount of hours required.
